Make black bean and corn salad in 5 minutes with this genius hack, no chopping required! A quick way to get fresh food on the table.


  • 15-ounce can black beans
  • 15-ounce can corn
  • 1 cup fresh pico de gallo, aka fresh salsa (purchased)*
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Fresh cilantro, if desired (for garnish)


  1. Drain and rinse the black beans. Drain the corn. In a bowl, mix them with the pico de gallo, salt, and olive oil.
  2. If desired, add torn cilantro. Serve immediately with a slotted spoon as a side salad, in a rice bowl, in tacos, or as a dip with tortilla chips.


*You’ll find this packaged in the refrigerated section at your local grocery: it may be labeled pico de gallo or fresh salsa. If you can’t find it, make homemade Pico de Gallo.
